Skipping Work is Worth it for Brunch at Bustan

“I’m in chocolate heaven,” said Avneet.

Last Friday afternoon, BlackBook staffers Emily and Avneet decided to skip out on the office and head uptown to Bustan for a mid-day feast. If you’re going to go all out, this is a pretty good place to do it.

We started off with guava fruit juice, which had a slightly spiced flavour and a macchiato to keep us refreshed.

Jumbo lump crab benedict with potatos and spinach drizzled in truffle oil. Rich and tasty, just the way we like it.

Layered with chocolate and sprinkled with bananas, the Nutella flatbread was one for the sweet tooths.

To finish off, the challah bread French toast  with syrup, crème fraîche, and blueberries, was a real treat.
